The Premier League game week 28 has been fascinating because it’s been full of goals including Arsenal’s 5-1 win over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal’s chances of finishing in the Premier League top four seem more realistic now thanks to goals from Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette and Koscielny who all scored to make sure that the gunners get all the three points from the Cherries.

Arsenal started the match with a back three and everyone in the fan base of the gunners was not happy with this decision because they usually struggle when using a similar formation but today wasn’t the case as they scored five past Bournemouth. Mesut Ozil gave Arsenal the lead in the early stages of the game and it was a beautiful goal because he shot the ball using his unique ball to the ground technique which saw the ball get past Boruc.

It didn’t take long for the North Londoners to double their lead as a mistake from the Bournemouth players saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan get the ball near the box and he passed it to Ozil who then gave it back to him and he put the ball into the back of the net.

Just as the match seemed to be taking the same direction as the Southampton game, Matteo Guendouzi lost the ball near the Arsenal box and Mousset put the ball into the back of the net to give the visitors some hope. Arsenal seemed to go on pressure because their lead was now under pressure but they were able to hold onto their 2-1 lead until halftime.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery did not make any changes at the start of the second half but the gunners were still in control of the game as they looked for more goals. A failed free kick saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan receive the ball at the flank and he sent a cross which found Koscielny in the right place and the captain scored to make it 3-1 for the gunners.

Unai Emery then replaced Kolasinac with Alex Iwobi. Henrikh Mkhitaryan later roamed through the midfield and unleashed a great pass for Aubameyang who rounded off the Bournemouth goalkeeper to also get on the score sheet. A few minutes later, Mkhitaryan got replaced by Lacazette who seemed very hungry for goals. Denis Suarez also later replaced Aubameyang.

Lucas Torreira tried to get in the penalty box but he was fouled earning Arsenal a free kick in a dangerous place. WHO KNEW LACAZETTE CAN SCORE FREE KICKS, The Frenchman curled the ball around the wall and it went into the back of the net. The match ended 5-1 in favour of Arsenal.
